I had a Flicker roosting at night in a bat house a few years ago for an entire season. It was fun watching him inch up the tree into the bottom opening. No bats that year.

Hi Tweeters,
I had watched a Flicker fly into my screech owl box (never inhabited by any owls) a couple of evenings ago and shortly after that a pair of starlings flew in too. I expected the Flicker to fly out at that point but no birds flew out for the rest of the evening. I watched the next morning for a while but I didn't witness any birds flying out. Last night the Flicker returned but no starlings were in the area so I assume they found a different spot for the night. I checked on-line to see if there were any other reports of this happening and there was a you tube video of a Flicker and a starling sharing a box.
All the best,
